We get it-- it feels like someone just pulled a dark cloud over your head as you see another email from your child’s teacher in your inbox. *sigh*
Yet again, you're learning that your child needs extra support at school, that they just aren’t getting it, & that they might need testing. It’s terrifying to think that your child isn’t getting what they need, that something is “wrong” with them, or that this could impact them for the rest of their lives.
All you want is for your child to be thriving, for things to be easy for them, & for them to just be….their most amazing selves. That's where we come in!
We can help you release all of this worry & fear. Think of this evaluation as a powerful & transformational tool for your child. You will learn in-depth information about their strengths while simultaneously getting to the root of what is actually going on for them. You will get answers, & a clear path forward for what to do next (which means their teachers will as well)!
And the best part? Going through testing sounds so much scarier than it actually is (in fact, so many of our kids leave their appointments talking about how much fun they had with us)!
Do you suspect that your child may be gifted? (Of course you do! Don't we all? ;) We're here to give you that answer, once & for all. Otherwise known as an IQ test, a gifted test will help us understand how well your child thinks, remembers, & solves problems. It's pretty cool to learn about your child's cognitive profile-- so much so that we often get requests for adult testing as well!
Buzz word of the decade? ADHD. This screening is recommended if your child has behavioral or learning concerns at school or at home. It will not only help you understand your child's needs & learning style, but if needed you will have the option to take this report to your pediatrician to get the appropriate diagnosis & discuss medication options.
Another buzz word-- Dyslexia. Yes, we test for Dyslexia, but did you know that there are other types of reading (& learning) disabilities as well? Let’s figure out exactly which subjects your child is doing well at & which ones they are struggling with. This will help create a laser focused path moving forward in school. Heck yes to way less struggle!
A comprehensive assessment is most often recommended because it tells you the WHY; why your child is struggling to read; why your child can't sit still; why your child is a math wizard. A comprehensive assessment is all the tests combined so we can get to the bottom of it all & don’t miss anything that’s going on with your child.
All testing services include a follow-up meeting explaining the results & a comprehensive written report for you to keep.
We will thoroughly go through the tests, what they mean, & break it down into bite size pieces so there’s no confusion.
This will give you a clear understanding of exactly what your child needs. Laid out, spelled out, documented, & ready to roll!
